Fresh Flavors Playlist, Vol. 1: Kendrick Lamar, Drake, SZA, & Majid Jordan

Here comes the fresh new flava in ya ear. In partnership with McDonald’s, we’ve crafted a playlist of “Fresh Flavors” that we just can’t get out of our heads, and that will keep your speakers lit through the summer days ahead.

Volume 1 kicks off with French Montana’s “Unforgettable” single featuring an irresistible hook from Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, making it an early contender for song of the summer.

But DJ Khaled is giving French a run for his money with his chart-topping smash “I’m the One” featuring the all-star squad of Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne. The summer-ready video, featuring Khaled’s son Asahd, only adds to the fun.

Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” may have already topped the charts, but “DNA.” is hot on its heels. The DAMN. standout, which is currently in the Hot 100 top 10, has already spawned an epic video starring Don Cheadle.

SZA’s sizzling new jam “Love Galore” featuring Travis Scott has us all aflutter for her long-awaited debut album Ctrl, due this summer.

While it was released two months ago, Drake’s “Passionfruit” stays on repeat, but he’s not the only OVO Sound act in our rotation. Majid Jordan’s “Phases” is a feel-good vibe, while PARTYNEXTDOOR’s appearance on Zayn’s “Still Got Time” should serve as the soundtrack to your next house party.

Mary J. Blige’s new album Strength of a Woman may delve into her tumultuous divorce, but there are also some uplifting jams, like the anthemic banger “Glow Up” featuring Missy Elliott, DJ Khaled, and Quavo.
